COOPERSTOWN – Melinda Hardin, the local Democratic organizer, hosted a meeting of party faithful this morning to discuss what to do as a result of Donald Trump’s election as president.
Hardin had planned to host the gathering at her and husband Lou Allstadt’s home; (he is an independent). But the response was so great – 85 attended – the meeting needed to be moved to the First Presbyterian church hall.
Attendees included prominent Democrats from Cooperstown, such as former Bassett CEO Bill Streck, and from Oneonta, such as Deb Marcus, director of Family Planning of South Central New York and a prominent Democrat in the city. Danielle Henrici, wife of Democratic election commissioner Mike Henrici, also commented.
